O Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo?
Romeo was actually at our very own Brendon Lawrence Sports Centre recently, rehearsing his part in Shakespeare’s iconic play with Matthew Bourne’s famous ballet company, New Adventures! It was great to welcome New Adventures to BLSC – where the cast rehearsed for their week of sold-out performances at Theatre Royal Nottingham as part of a UK-wide tour.
As you can see from the pictures below, BLSC looks completely different, transformed from a sports hall into a stage set!
The performance included six Young Cast members who are local to Nottingham and they were also featured on Notts TV. There’s a quick introduction at 1.03 minutes in, and then an interview with Romeo (Harrison Dowzell) and some of the Young Cast members at 16.50 minutes in. Plus some wonderful clips of the dancers in action and BLSC as you’ve never seen it before!

If you fancy following in the footsteps of Romeo & Co, BLSC is available for hire. The centre is suitable for a whole range of activities and includes a sports hall, dance studio, showers, changing rooms for up to 20 people and meeting space.
